Vintage Henryk Winograd .999 Silver Repoussé Bacchante Cameo NecklaceRegular price $ 398.00 Save $ -398.00
This beautiful raised relief cameo is an breathtaking example of the highly skilled art of repoussé -- and is made by the master himself!
Until his death in 2008, artist and jewelry designer Henryk Winograd was regarded as one of the world's greatest masters of traditional silversmithing and America's leading practitioner of the art of repoussé.
Repoussé is a metalworking technique in which malleable metal is shaped by hammering from the reverse side to create a raised, 3-dimensional design on the front. Definition and details are then added to the front through embossing and chasing.
Masterfully crafted in 99.9% pure silver -- Winograd's preferred metal of choice -- this sizeable piece features a high relief of a beautiful bacchante with a wreath of grapes and leaves adorning her wavy locks.
Pendant is signed with the Winograd hallmark HW999 and comes with a sterling silver chain.
The perfect gift for any art or wine lover!
